Can’t decide between taking photos or taking videos with your GoPro camera? Well perhaps the GoPro Dual Hero System might be of interest to you then. This is an accessory designed for GoPro’s HERO+ Black camera and basically what it does is that it allows two HERO+ Black cameras to be held in one housing together, as you can see in the image above.
Why would anyone want to do that? Well like we said earlier, one of the benefits is that such a setup will allow you to take both photos and videos simultaneously. So if you wanted some still footage along with your video footage, you will be able to do that as well. In fact, according to GoPro, having a dual camera setup will also allow you to create 3D content which you can do so using GoPro’s editing software.
Now you’re probably wondering, how will I be able to control two cameras at once? Does it mean that both cameras need to have their shutter release pressed at the same time? Have both settings adjusted so that they’re the same? Well no, because the setup will allow for a single interface control where one camera will control the other camera’s settings, so you won’t have to fiddle with too many controls at once.
Apart from that, the Dual Hero system will be waterproof as well, just like GoPro’s other camera housings, so if you were hoping to use it underwater, you will be able to do so as well. If you think this is a cool setup you’d like to have, you can head on over to GoPro’s website to get your hands on it for $200. The HERO+ Black cameras will be sold separately.
